You can ask for an extension to a deadline if something unexpected has happened to you, which means you may not submit your work on time. You will need evidence to support the application, this should outline the impact the circumstances have had on you.

If you require an extension to an assignment you should complete the late authorisation form, available on your Student Portal. Make sure you review the criteria and evidence before you submit the application. You will be given additional time to gather evidence if you need it, full guidance on Late Authorisations can be found here, there is also a quick guide to appropriate supporting evidence here.

Requests for Late Authorisation must be made before the assignment deadline. You can request an extension for up to 10 working days, any additional time is at the discretion of the Module/Programme Leader. For further details please ensure you read the guidance on your Student Portal thoroughly.
